Almost half of surveyed iPhone users plan to upgrade to iPhone 13

Almost half of the respondents in a recent survey said they’d upgrade to the iPhone 13.

According to a new study from SellCell, an eye-watering 44% of consumers say they plan to upgrade to the iPhone 13 when it’s released. They cited 120Hz refresh rates as the new feature they were most looking forward to.

The survey revealed that most consumers planned to buy the flagship iPhone 13 (38.2%), whilst 30.8% wanted to get their hands on the new iPhone 13‌ Pro Max, and 24% on the iPhone 13 Pro.

Just 7% said they’d be interested in buying the new iPhone 13 mini. Apple is reportedly planning to drop the mini model from its product lineup in 2022, but there will be a mini variant in 2021.

The report suggested that the most anticipated new features included a higher refresh rate, under the display Touch ID, and a smaller notch. Some also said they were expecting an always-on display, similar to the Apple Watch, and though this had been rumored, there’s no sign it’ll come this year.

Some responders said that they were looking forward to new color options on the iPhone 13, as well as a faster processor, WiFi 6E connectivity, and the possibility of reverse wireless charging.
